Newcastle city walls from the air
|Buy this picture|
aerial photograph of Newcastle upon Tyne city centre showing the old city walls and the area enclosed within them including Clayton St, Charlotte Square NE1, Pilgrim St , Blackfriars Square , Friars St and Westgate Rd. The City walls were build during the medieval period mainly in the 13th and 14 th century. The walls kept the city safe from successive Scottish attacks during the middle ages until the walls were finally breached during the English Civil war. The walls were last reinforced during the Jacobite rebellions of the mid 18th century but by the end of that century they were no longer needed and the first sections were demolished.
The easiest way to navigate this gallery is using the geographic menu on the left. The aerial photographs are all organised in galleries according to their location so start with the county and then choose the town or village. Wales & Scotland are at the bottom under the English Counties. If your looking at a picture and are not sure where it is, click the arrow on the upper right and it will show you which album it is in. Click the album name to see nearby images. There is a search facility ( bottom left ) but this only works with words I have put into it. That's fine for searches of places or well known buildings but in most cases I have not entered road name or a post code. The gallery is only a small part of my collection of UK aerial photographs so please Email if you would like to buy an aerial view of something not in the gallery. There are over 25,000 photos in the gallery and I have an archive of around half a million pictures going back to 1999.
